Senior Islamic Jihad delegation heads for talks in Cairo
A senior Islamic Jihad (Holy War) delegation left for Cairo Saturday evening through Rafah crossing point to hold talks with Egyptian officials, a senior Islamic Jihad source unveiled, Xinhua reported.
The source said that his group's delegation would hold talks with Egyptian mediators, but it is unclear whether the delegation would join the Fatah-Hamas talks held here.
The Islamic Jihad delegation was headed by top leader Mohamed al-Hindi and four other senior leaders, said the Jihad source.
Today, Rival Fatah and Hamas movements, who held a session of inter-dialogue in Cairo on Saturday, agreed to hold another session on Sunday to continue their debates, said Palestinian sources.
The sources told the West bank-based Maan news agency that the discussions in today's meeting were "frank, in-depth and serious," adding that "all outstanding issues were discussed on the table."
The conferees agreed to meet again on Sunday, hoping that the two sides can find a solution to all their outstanding issues before holding a last round of dialogue in Cairo on July 25.
In case the two parties agree on their disputes, it would present to the Egyptian mediators to call for chiefs of other Palestinian factions to convene to sign an agreement on July 28 in Cairo.
